Breakfast Delight

Our weekend breakfast...prata with banana. Another quick and easy breakfast to put together. Simply pan-fry a frozen prata, top it with some banana slices and finish off with a drizzling of homemade chocolate sauce, and, breakfast is ready!


I thoroughly enjoyed the visual effect of the prata slowly ballooned and puffed into a ball when it was sizzling in the pan. It makes cooking a pleasure! Could you see how puffy the edges turn out?!

I can't remember where I copied the chocolate sauce recipe, but it is so easy to make...just mix 1 tablespoon of cocoa powder(I used Ghirardelli, unsweetened cocoa powder), gradually, (don't dump it all in) with 50g of condensed milk (about 2 1/2 tablespoons). Do sieve the cocoa powder and stir the mixture really well. I don't want you to make the same mistake I did...I had tiny bits of undissolved cocoa powder in my chocolate sauce (^_^''')


This is my share, you wouldn't want to see how my kids covered theirs with the chocolate sauce! I didn't ask my younger child for his opinion, to him anything that is sweet, tastes good. My elder child who has got more refined taste buds assured me that he loves his breakfast to bits!

By the way, if you ever want to try this, don't throw away any left over chocolate sauce (that is, if you are lucky enough). Use it to sweeten your coffee and you will have an instant mocha coffee right away.

  1. The Mamak Stalls over here should start making this and earn big and pay you copyright!! Sounds so delicious. I should request this the next time I drop by a Mamak stall hopefully they could make me some with Milo or something since I highly doubt they have cocoa powder!!

  10. Hi tracie, thanks for the idea, my kids will like it with milo too ;)

    Grace, Irene, Jane, thanks for your kind words :)

    Hi Fizzy, prata is a kind of 'pancake' which is served with curry.

    Hi Anonymous, I bought my Ghirardelli cocoa powder from the States. Are you a local?? If yes, you can look for it at Cold Storage, otherwise you can get other brands such as Hershey from most local supermarkets.

    Hi Swee San, thanks for dropping by :)

  12. I was just thinking of how to use up my condensed milk ( dad got 5 cans from a lucky draw!!). Your chocolate sauce recipe comes in just in time. Much easier way than making chocolate sauce the traditional way. Thanks!

  14. I'd have never associate choco & roti canai together! Talking about creativity, HHB, you've got it!

    LOL at Tracie! Perhaps tha Mamak stalls can only provide us with Milo sauce ... not choco sauce ... If only you HHB記 ... Otherwise, we're not gonna be able to taste this limited edition of roti canai. Hahaha ...!
